Fox Cancels Jamie Foxx-Produced Comedy Series

Fox Cancels Jamie Foxx-Produced Comedy Series

Days after announcing a reboot of "In Living Color," the network axes sketch show "In the Flow."

Published November 3, 2011

Looks like there's room for only one urban sketch comedy on the Fox network. The Hollywood Reporter says the network has canceled the Jamie Foxx-produced sketch series, In the Flow With Affion Crockett, after airing just six episodes. The news comes days after the network announced it would reboot an old classic, In Living Color, retaining original star Keenan Ivory Wayans as host and producer.

 

Despite featuring a number of high-profile guests, such as Snoop Dogg and Glee's Harry Shum Jr., and a creative team headed by Arrested Development's Mitch Hurwitz and Two and a Half Men's Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, the Sunday night series couldn't find a steady audience.

 

Maybe now Crockett can join forces with Wayans, instead of competing for the same viewers?
